Wind was faintly out of the WNW as Thursday got started. We’re heading to a mostly sunny day with a high of 26C. Swell at sea was 0.9 metres at 9-10 seconds from the NE. First tide of the day is the 1.85 m high at 1210.
Did the Manly run this morning, so, as you can see from the pics, it’s pretty much ankle to knee high at Queenscliff, Curly and Dee Why. Nice morning for an exercise paddle though. Water is on 20C too.
The NE’r should come up soon and it’s predicted to get into the 20-25 kt range by dusk. With luck that’ll mean waves for tomorrow’s early will be a wee bit bigger…
Go well everyone!
